“Great Hotel...Great Location”
Reviewed 5 January 2008

This is a lovely nonsmoking hotel located close to everything. You can walk a few steps and for $10 you can ride the trolley all day and see all the sites, with easy on and off stops. You WILL see ALL of Salem if you do this. We stayed in the King Suite with wet bar. It was lovely. Only thing was that there were no doors on the closet in our bedroom...I found that odd. Also, as we were travelling with our teenage daughter, she got the pull out bed in the front room. The door to our bedroom was mostly all glass with NO curtain, so naturally, we had no privacy. I also found this a tad odd.Great location, close to the old town, attractions and some super restaurants. Going with Kids...try Red's Sandwich Shop on Central...you can feed the whole gang for $20. Best mediums in town can we found almost next door (Angelica of the Angels) Cute shop, a lot of fun. I also recommend Victoria Station on Pickering Wharf...the food is great, prices reasonable and a stones throw away from the hotel. Like beer, try the Salem Beer Works also close to the hotel. Also see the Peabody Essex Museum...small but interesting and worth the visit. Salem in an enchanting town with much to offer any visitor interested in history. I've stayed at the Salem Inn as well, and I much prefer this hotel.
Take it from someone who knows! You'll love this hotel.

A nice hotel with everything you need for a few nights in Salem. Nothing too fancy but clean rooms & convenient location. The pub was a nice place to get a drink, the food was decent. When I stayed at the hotel I was a first time visitor to Salem. The staff was able to recommend good restaurants and attractions, even point us towards those less touristy ones. Good experience, all in all, I would recommend it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Rising six stories, the Salem Waterfront Hotel & Suites on Pickering Wharf Marina blends a contemporary outlook with an appreciation for the area's proud past. It is Salem's newest boutique hotel with a warm nautical décor. The 86 rooms and suites have handsome wood furnishings, fabrics in soothing shades and windows that let in lots of light. Look for flat-panel TVs with cable channels, pillowtop beds and high-end Keurig coffeemakers. There are complimentary wired and wireless internet connections available throughout the property, and loaner iPads are available in the lobby. Local calls are free, as are morning newspapers in lobby. It is the only hotel downtown Salem with a heated indoor pool, and the fitness room is packed with cardio and strength-training equipment. Specializing in locally caught seafood, the on-site restaurant, The Regatta Pub, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner for a "Cool and Casual Fare with Flair". In warmer weather, the tables spill out onto the patio and on cooler nights we have roaring firepits for guests to relax and enjoy a beverage or meal next to. Laundry service is a plus and Parking is always free. Our doormen will be most happy to assist with luggage assistance. LOCATION: With more than 300 years of history just outside the front door, the Salem Waterfront Hotel is a great base for exploring. The hotel sits at Pickering Wharf, close to lots of shopping and dining opportunities. Within walking distance are attractions like the Peabody Essex Museum and the historic Phillips House. Boston Logan International Airport is 15 miles southwest and Boston is 20 miles. ... more   less
